    Any movie with Rodney dangerfield, bill murray and Chevy chase in their primes is gold. Pure gold…

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    I think you either love or hate Monty Python , I just hated it all and my best friend growing up would watch this movie all the time along with other MP movies.

    How can there be so many votes for the Grail?  It’s total genius.

    I picked it for family movie night a while back. 

    Nothing has made me prouder as a father than when I hear them quote it.

    I got my 12 year old daughter to watch.  She absolutely loved it.  Watched it again by herself 48 hours later. I am extremely proud too.  The wife hates it and is in shock that my daughter quotes it, particularly the Frenchman.

    I cant believe it.  2 of my top 3 comedies on the list (maybe any comedies) are in the top 3 in votes.  Love The Jerk and the Naked Gun.  I showed the Naked Gun to my 8 year old kid the other day and we were dying.

    Haven't seen all of them, so difficult to eliminate films I've never seen, that would seem unfair. They're quite old skool some of them.

    My recommendation would be to watch any on the list that you haven't seen and let us know how you feel.

    Watching Naked Gun tonight with the 12 year old.  We'll see if the jokes still hold.

    I’m guessing all the votes for Monty Python are from folks who don’t get British humour and the inherent caste system, because that movie is pure gold.

    John Cleese was fantastic. Also loved Fawlty Towers.

    He’s typically deep yet funny in most of the interviews with him that I’ve seen.
